Emily Maynard the Next 'Bachelorette'?
Us Weekly says that Emily Maynard is the next "Bachelorette". She's the one that Brad Womack picked his second time around.
I don't really know what I think of this. She seems like a very nice girl, but then again, she's had her chance on the show. I'm kind of getting sick of all of the "recycling" of old contestants. Of course I would like her to find love though. Her fiancee, Ricky Hendrick, died tragically in a plane crash when Emily had just learned that she was pregnant with her daughter, Ricki.
It's such a sad story, but now it appears she is going out to search for her happy ending. As for why it didn't work out with Brad. Us Weekly quotes her friend as saying that Emily is "looking for a man - not a little boy." I take it our 38-year-old Brad was not quite mature enough to step in and be a husband and step-father just yet.
Emily's season of "The Bachelorette" is set to begin airing in March. We'll see when we get the official word from ABC. So far, their lips are sealed.
